2018 Kia Cee'd teased, but hold the drool

If you thought Kia was going to drop the Stinger on us and declare itself finished with sporting design, now there's this. The concept teased here is yet to be named, but one could easily consider it a first look a powerful new mid-sized shooting brake, shouldering up to the Optima Sportswagon - just as the Stinger's done with the comparatively dull Optima sedan...

Kia Australian suspension tune goes global on Pro_cee'd GT

The Kia Pro_cee’d GT hot hatch may no longer be sold in Australia due to low sales, but the company’s local tuning arm is still making a major impact on the car.

2014 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-Tech review

After spending six months looking for a modern midlife-crisis car, I settled on a 2014 Kia Pro_cee'd GT-Tech in what I’ve found to be a rare silver one. Before making my choice, I drove a Toyota 86 and a Hyundai Veloster Turbo prior to the Pro_cee'd. All were manual transmission. The 86 was a typical Toyota (Boring) and not a real four-seater...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT review

“I drive a Kia.” Over the past three years I’ve come to painfully accept that few things, if any, decimate one’s attempt to maintain any credibility of being a car enthusiast than those four words. And that’s even before we get to the poorly punctuated model name...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT review

As a FWD man, I have owned many hot hatchbacks from the 1970s onwards. All have their quirks, but none has been as sorted as this Kia. The Australian version has suspension settings that differ from Europe, and it had to be this way. The fact they now use them in Europe says a lot. I like the way this car handles – not too firm, and just enough oversteer when playing...

2015 Kia Pro_cee'd GT Review

Fourteen months in. I am no expert in relationships but if you spent up to two hours with someone, or something, almost daily you think you would have learnt everything there is to learn.
